Morgan 27 sail/stanchion problem

The dust created from sanding the ablative paint (black) off of the bottom settled onto the fiberglass deck. We then got some minor rain, not enough to really rinse it off, but enough to wet the dust down. We now cannot get the dust stain out of the fiberglass. Regular cleaners have been tried, along with non-skid deck cleaner and soft scrub with bleach. Does anyone have any other ideas?

I have always successfully used Softscrub with bleach on a 3m scrub pad for removing the copper oxide stains created by bottom paint dust. Sometimes it has taken a scrubbing or two. It sounds like you have a worse problem than I have ever run into.

My experience is that it will faded away on its on in about two weeks. At least thats the way it works here on the Gulf Coast.

I assume you have already washed the rest of the excess off, now sit down and let that UV from the sun tan you and clean the deck.

Morgan 27 sail/stanchion problem

I have been encountering a problem on my Morgan 27 since I bought it 5 years ago. The problem is when we tack the boat and trim her in we always have to have a deck person on hand to pull the sail over the first stanchion aft of the bowpulpit. Granted you can head up and luff her over but when racing itís the last thing I want to do. J-24 guys say beat the lifeline and sheíll pop over, never happening. Would love to hear if this is a common problem and love even more if there is a solution.

One of the solutions is to attach a couple of the funny wheel thingies onto your lifelines. These rotate around the wire and allow the sail to roll over the top. They actually do work, if you put them in the right spot.
They are cheap, so it makes sense to try them as an easy fix first. If it doesn''t work, you are only out about $10 and five minutes of installation.

I crewed for a guy on an old Ericson 35 who had crewed for Melges on Heart of America (so I think he knows his stuff) We had to send someone forward to skirt the jib after every tack and he seemed not to consider it a problem.
